Torque spec for oil drain plug and cartridge cap

I have a 2010, 4cyl Equinox. Could someone tell me what the recommended torque spec is for the oil drain plug and the cartridge cap cover?

I hve heard about it being 18 ft lbs for the drain plug but I haven't been able to really confirm this, any help out there!

Thank you,

Yes 15-18ft/lbs is plenty for the drain, threads are soft so you don't want to overtighten too much.
Cartridge cap is plastic so 10-12ft/lbs is plenty, it makes a good seal, so just nice and snug is all that is required.[/color]
